My good friend, Larry Bodine, is a brilliant business development coach and visionary on using the web to increase your exposure. He also happens to be a guy who constantly is looking for new challenges and experiences.

A few months ago, he asked me for some help on being able to do something basic: more  pull ups. We talked for a while, and I gave him some routines that I thought might help. A few weeks later, he let me know that his results improved dramatically. He also was filled with a sense of pride that he continued to improve week after week.

He recently sent me this note from his latest adventure (picture included):

Ventana Canyon - view from the top 1 I’ve been hiking a lot lately, and yesterday made it to the peak of Ventana Canyon.  It’s an 8-mile round trip, climbing up 1300 feet to the top, at 4240 feet.  At the end, the “trail” was a pile of rocks. I have a blister on my left foot, a sunburn, sore quadriceps, and a real sense of accomplishment.

Larry has a son out of college, a very busy consulting practice and is on the road constantly. However, he finds time for his next fitness challenge and accomplishment. Good for you, Larry.

Some people only have a two dimensional view of the world. They read about it in books or see pictures of it on the Internet. Larry has a 3D perspective of the world: he was there. And, the view is better from the top.
